I had to go to DFW yesterday. While many elements of the trip were quite frustrating indeed, it was great to sit down with Nino for lunch.
Go Cardinals! As a half-Missourian I have always had a soft spot for both the Royals and the Cardinals. It's a little tougher the be proud of the Royals but I am still a big George Brett fan.
We have had some interesting luck when it comes to Connor's Haloween costumes in the past. One year he was a train engineer. Within days there was a small train derailment in our area. One year he was a surfer with a bandaged leg and a bite out of his surf board. The same day as our fall carnival at church that girl surfing in Hawaii got her arm bitten off by a shark. I won't reveal yet what he will be this year, but last night one of the umpires in the Cardinals/Tigers game was hit by a foul ball. Honestly, I think he is outgrowing the whole dressing up thing, but next year I may try to get him to dress like a politician or two that I can think of. I would much prefer term limits, but sometimes you have to get proactive.
Now for the interactive portion of today's post:
If you were to change careers, what would you do? Now let me qualify this, I am looking for real scenarios. Tell me something to which you might actually be able to switch. For instance, don't tell me you're going from high school shop teacher to opera-singing pro wrestler. Unless you have some true chance of entering the ring after a rousing performance of Pagliacci the possibility remains a mere pipe-dream (and possibly a starting point on the next visit to your therapist). Anywho, if anyone is reading this, let me know what you think.
